Norwegian Rarebit

nsert from URL

My Grandma used to make Welsh Rarebit all the time. Of course, that’s not what she called it. I made it for a friend one day and he said, “I didn’t know you were Welsh”. Feeling perplexed, I asked why he thought so. He said that’s what his family made and they were Welsh.

Who knew. Grandma would make a big pan of toasted bread and serve it as hungry people came in. The toast would be ready in the oven and it became an easy meal or hearty snack. She was pretty smart for someone who stood all of 4 foot 10 inches tall.

4 cups sliced American cheese (1 pound) melted

Gradually stir in: 3/4 cup cream

1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1/4 teaspoon salt

dash of pepper

Serve over croutons or toast. I always had it over toast with celery leaf salad.

If I’m only making this for G and I, croutons are the way to go then you don’t have to cut it.

and remember: I always mean what I say. I may not mean to say it out loud, but I always mean it. Big kiss, Lynn
